Yes, using any number of tools, including LUKS.

Is it possible to encrypt your root partition at any time? Not while the 
system is running, as far as I know. If it is, its not an easy procedure. Its 
best to encrypt your root partition at install time (which the Debian 
installer will allow you to perform).

Is it possible to encrypt your /home partition at any time? Yes, but its not a 
straight forward process. It can definitely be done while the system is 
running, but its not recommended.
